Remembering the Past: Historic Bridges

Challenge #4 in the Remembering the Past series. Hosted by libertylady.
Challenge has finished
There are many really interesting bridges in the world. In this challenge, I am not looking for covered bridges as that would be a challenge to itself. They can be beautiful or broken down but should exhibit some character. Please tell where the bridge is located and the age if you know it. You can do that in the title or description.
